Raise a living thing from nothing.
Then I will know for myself who you are.
Clothed in skin a pile of dry bones.
Then I will know for myself who you are.

I will feel breath come into my body.
Then I'll know just who you are.

Raise a living thing from nothing.
(simultaneously) Clothed in skin a pile of dry bones.
Then I will know for myself who you are.

Raise a living thing from nothing.
(simultaneously) Clothed in skin a pile of dry bones.
(simultaneously) I will feel breath come into my body.
Then I will know for myself who you are.
(repeat)

Will know for myself
You are who you say you are.

Then I will know for myself.
Then I will know.
Then I will know who you are.

Then I will know for myself.

    General CommentThe challenge has been taken up and fulfilled. If you did indeed create us, and if you did indeed rise from the dead, then I have no choice but to follow and worship.

    My InterpretationThis song reminds me of the Biblical story of doubting Thomas. He needed to see that Jesus had returned from the dead in order to believe. But I also think that this is more focused with the fact that the narrator doesn't actually need the proof, and that they believe anyways because of Jesus' resurrection. A definite religious theme with a more comforting tone in my opinion.
